New Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino is without club captain Adam Lallana (knee) for Monday's clash.

The home side will also be missing Guilherme Do Prado (illness) and Jose Fonte (knee) for the visit of Everton.

David Moyes will make the journey to the south coast unable to call on midfield Darron Gibson (hip) and Kevin Mirallas (hamstring).

Defensive duo John Heitinga (muscle injury) and Tony Hibbert (calf) are also likely to be ruled out.

  • Southampton have conceded almost twice as many goals in away fixtures (26) as they have on home turf (14).
  • The last season that the Saints were in the top division - 2004/05 - Everton qualified for the Champions League.
  • Two of Southampton's strikers from that campaign are now team-mates once again in the Premier League: Peter Crouch and Kenwyne Jones, at Stoke City.
  • Everton have conceded exactly the same number of goals (26) than they had done after the same number of fixtures last term.
  • Last weekend's goalless draw with Swansea represented the first time in 20 matches that David Moyes' (pictured right) men managed to keep a clean sheet - since their last game against Swansea in September.
